Penny meets Lyle, the manager of an indie bookstore, and she is immediately drawn to him. He convinces her to keep their relationship secret. He's dangerous and exciting and she can't seem to get enough of him. They finally do have sex and the first time has some detail (but it's not graphic) and then it's implied after that.
Penny is stunned when Lyle explains his plan to her. However, she thinks it's ridiculous and thinks there's no way they'll get away with it, so she agrees to it. She figures they'll try and fail and then they can carry on their relationship as they had before. She's amazed when it appears that they will actually pull this con off. Then everything spins out of control and the ending was a surprise to me.
I liked Penny at the beginning but once she got involved in the con and continued with it, she became harder for me to like. I felt like she had opportunities to come clean but chose not to so I didn't see her as a victim after a while. I knew going in that Lyle was a bad guy. I could understand Penny's initial attraction to him, especially since she was going through a transition herself, but kept hoping she would come to her senses. Lyle does a good job of emotionally and psychologically controlling Penny and is a mystery all the way until the end. How bad is he really? You'll have to read it to find out!
I enjoyed Mr. Stewart's writing style and this book is well-written. The ending is suspenseful and was hard to put down. I'm still not sure how the ending sits with me, though. If this is the type of book you enjoy reading, you will definitely want to read this one!
Content: Sex (some detail, not graphic), there is a scene where he exerts mild violence toward her, mild swearing.
I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.
